In prep for the JMT, I bought some trash compactor bags at Ralphs supermarket to use as pack liners, and they fit perfectly in my G4. No more having to use and keep replacing several garbage bags. However I began to notice my that my pack smelled like bad air freshener and realized the trash compactor bag was the culprit. The box says "repels odors," but doesn't say "scented" anywhere on it. I've been had.
When I sleep, I use my pack under my legs for insulation and am worried that animals (bears) will be attracted to the smell and bother me during the night.
What do you think? Am I being paranoid? Where can I find unscented trash compactor bags?
I guess I could just take the liner out every night and put it in the bear canister.
